The Botanique has become a cultural Centre since 1984. Formally, it was a Botanique garden, with gorgious greenhouses. Nowadays, it still show its wonderful architecture, together with up-to-date concert venues (Orangerie, Rotonde, Witloof Bar ...). Discover our many concerts over the year through our website or visit our galery called Museum, with its 4 or 5 big exhibitions a year (photography, paintings, ...).

My daughters and I walked through these gardens on our way from our hotel to the Grand Place. Brussels is a vibrant and busy city and it was so calming and uplifting to find this lovely tranquil space. I hope to visit Brussels again someday soon, and would definitely want to come back to see Le Botanique again.

A real space of peace in this crazy city. Next to Place Rogier, it is huge, well kept and at all times of the year just a haven of peace, Buy you lunch/sandwich and just sit and contemplate. Next to the pond, you wil have competition from the ducks. Marvelous.

A botanical garden without any great surprises but it is worth a visit in the spring and summer especially. Even in the winter it is relaxing place to escape the traffic and crowds of the surrounding area

Very intimate music venue. A small shoegazing band "School of Seven bells" and the whole room was just stunning all together. I bit of a puzzle getting inside,- from the outside it looks quite different than first expexted. But really worth a visit!! Dont forget to buy beer, because the whole setup is concave and you have to pass a... More

I went there for a concert at Orangerie. The place is cool because it's small so very intimate but when I went the tickets were sold out and inside the venue was so hot and had not ventilation expect if I'd stand by the door. Also only one door which makes coming in and out hard even if is only... More

We originally came here for the vintage strip photo booth, but it's been moved to a shop near Bourse. Gardens are beautiful though so not a wasted trip.

Saw Swedish folk-pop group First Aid Kit at Le Botanique - an excellent band in a great, intimate music venue.
